Hi Helmet,

Greeting from the USA!   I was stationed in Germany for three
years in the seventies.  I absolutely adored Germany and
still miss it at times.

An ftp server can be set up to require a username and password.
And that can be different than the Windows user name and password.
That should throw a wrench in the works!  And there is always
write only and read only accounts.  Wonder if you would get away
with that in Samba?


Computers are like air conditioners.
